Great tour
We went all over the old city, learned the history and saw many things we might have missed otherwise. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining.

Susanne Ri was absolutely fantastic as a guide! Very informational and had wonderful historical photos and maps to show us which really helped paint a picture of historical Zurich. I would highly recommend doing this tour especially if you haven’t been to Zurich before.

BAD BAD EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!
Apr 2021 • Couples
We booked the walking old town tour. And we decided to left it after 1 hour because it was totally useless! It was a group of 4 people (two french and two English speakers) and the guide explained all things in french and nothing in English! I would like to return my money ! Because I don’t see the point why I should pay for french tour when I am English speaker! (And in tour description it says that you will have the same experience in both languages)

Nice tour of a Beautiful City

The weather was perfect for this walking tour on that day. We started at the train station and ended at Fraumunster.
We went through some parts of Zurich that I wouldn't have known to go to otherwise. Our guide was very pleasant and very knowledgeable.

Excellent tour and a great way to see the city
Nov 2019
Did this tour in November. My one gripe is that the tour was probably a bit too long, (just over 2 hours) and since it was November, we were frozen by the end of it. However, we did get 2 free Gluhwein vouchers each to warm us up! The tour cost around 25 Francs and considering that Gluhwein is about 6 Francs everywhere you go, the tour itself was quite good value. Excellent tour if you like your history as Zurich has plenty of it.

The tour was very informational and covered a lot of ground! However, the tour was taking place in both English and German for part of the tour which was rather distracting when it was scheduled to be only in English.

Guide lost 3 people
Nov 2019
On a Saturday afternoon, our guide, Filomena, lost three people right at the start. We crossed the street from the train station in a crush of people and merged another group with the guide wearing the same blue jacket and white backpack. My husband and I followed the other guide who was walking very fast. Our guide did not warn us before we merged with the sea of people that she was turning left as soon as we got to the other side. We would have been lost had not one of our friends run after us, fighting his way in a tight crowd and helped us back to our group. One person had to call her friend on the cell phone because like us, she followed the wrong guide. She walked back looking totally lost. The guides should have a flag or something that can be seen from afar. The company should also invest in a "whisper" gadget so everybody could hear the guide as we are walking along. I liked that we walked through little alleyways not accessible to tour buses.

Grüezi mh95037 Thank you very much for your feedback. We are always glad to get feedbacks from our guests to improve our service. We appologize for this experience and we will brief our Tour Guides in future better. We have checked the option with audioguides but so far the advantages without headphones have outweighed for our guests. Nevertheless we will examine all feedbacks to improve our tours in future. We hope you had a great stay in Zurich and we look forward to welcome you again. Kind regards, Johanna
